It would be nice if someone 'official' (ala TDF) could post the
CVE-2012-0037 notice on both the user and announce lists.

The public was not supposed to know of this CVE, people should be
given time to update to the fixed version before.

See e.g.
http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/10/05/the-document-foundation-publishes-details-of-libreoffice-3-4-3-security-fixes/

"Following industry best practice, details of security fixes are
withheld until users have been given time to migrate to the new
version."

But Apache-OOo made it public on their list, so we also had to make
the info available.
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-ooo-dev/201203.mbox/%3CCAP-ksoj7o5%2B2YH-E4XzR044V0e3YZfZvuef7eJuNGhdy%2Bk9kyA%40mail.gmail.com%3E


Neither do the release logs or release notes.

As above - this was intentional. No details about the security fixes
until the upstream project makes the CVE public (the bug is in a
third-party component that is shipped along with LibreOffice).

That of course doesn't mean it shouldn't be added now that the CVE is public.

ciao
Christian
